Iran slams eviction of Muslim student

Thursday 30th December, 2004  
Iranian parliament Speaker Ghulam Adel Wednesday denounced the expulsion of a Muslim student from a French school for wearing a veil.

Adel urged European countries to confront such unfair French measures, the Iranian News Agency reported.

The French decision to ban the Muslim veil in public schools is a blunt violation of human rights and aimed at confronting a religious minority in that country, Adel told parliament.

He said Muslim women know very well that wearing the veil does not curb their political and social activities.

France earlier this year passed a controversial law banning the provocative display of religious symbols in public schools, including Muslim veils, Jewish skullcaps and oversized crosses.

Iranian government requires everyone of every single faith wear a full veil.
